What they say...

Customers Testimonials Reviews Nettikasino

"Rationale is clearly a breakthrough product that has the potential to accelerate the development of sound reasoning." Gregory Louie, Gravelly Hill Middle School, North Carolina casinos online

"I am glad to have a product to capture my thought process in a way that is a step above just a mind map. Mind map software can capture the same thoughts, but your system organizes the thoughts in a automated way that I was looking for in a program." Paul Trebian, University of Phoenix caça níquel

"I've been looking for an effective way to teach critical thinking for 10
years - Rationale is far and away the most promising option I've ever
seen." Dr. Steve Crowley, Boise State University Online Casino Canada
